Everything at Energy Kitchen is either grilled, baked, or steamed. No frying or froiling is allowed inside the establishment—violators are froiled alive in accordance with the Code of Hammurabi. The restaurant's fresh and healthy take on dining is causing a buzz in the media and in celebrities circles. Even A.C. Slater approves.
Although short on calories, Energy Kitchen's menu is long on variety. When the sun awakens your hunger, stop in for breakfast. The veggie egg wrap ($5.99) is made with only the purest egg whites, and pancakes ($6.49) and muffins ($2.19) are protein-infused morsels of morning mouth-joy. Three short rooster crows, followed by one long, signals the end of breakfast and beginning of lunch.
Choose from a lunchtime variety of burgers, entrees, and salads. Lean meats and fish, such as bison, ostrich, seared tuna, and grilled salmon make appearances throughout the menu. Snag a bison or ostrich burger ($6.99 each) topped with lettuce and tomato on a wheat roll. Reel in some grilled salmon or yellowfin tuna ($12.99 each) served with two sides. Order a preordained salad, such as the Kitchen Chopped (grilled chicken, scallions, tomatoes, blue cheese and turkey bacon bits, $9.49) or recklessly assert your faith in the ludibrium of luck with a custom toss (your choice of base greens, four veggies, and dressing, $6.49). (Custom toss is not available at all locations.) When your thirst kicks in, slurp up a 24-ounce smoothie for $6.29, or dabble in the health-conscious lineup of other beverages ($1.99 each).
The Hoboken Energry Kitchen location was recently featured in the New York Times.
- At Energy Kitchen in Hoboken, no dish contains more than 500 calories and every item is grilled, steamed or baked. But flavor is not sacrificed in the burgers, wraps and muffins... Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served from the sleek counter in the bright, airy shop... – Kelly Feeney
- Great place for a healthy, quick bite. The Thai Chicken Wrap, Meatloaf, and Philly (Bison) Cheesesteak are all great choices. They also make baked homefries that are yummy too. – lostredsrock
